Palicki, Blood Join “SHIELD” Spin-Off Series

Two of the best additions to the cast of “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” in its second season are set to leave the show for the upcoming spin-off series.

Deadline reports that Adrianne Palicki and Nick Blood are finalizing deals for their characters Barbara ‘Bobbi’ Morse and Lance Hunter to lead the new show.

The characters are former husband and wife who have let sparks fly in an on again/off again relationship on the show, something which will likely be carried over to the new show and give it more of a vibe along “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” lines.

The current second season of ‘SHIELD’ will include elements that are setting up the spinoff which Jeffrey Bell and Paul Zbyszewski will write and executive produce. The network won’t formally green light the project until the script comes in, but if it does then Zbyszewski will likely serve as show runner.
